Veggie Balls?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I plan on making the evil balls of hell (http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/83074/evil-balls-of-hell) and buffalo chicken balls (http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/94002/thanks-gunner69) for christmas appetizers.

 

Any thoughts on a veggie ball that I could smoke to go with them??

First off welcome to SMF. Now your veggi balls sound and anything that Ellymea comes up with is usually pretty darn good to. Then you have something from treegie he's another on for great little morsels. So make them both and enjoy.
